    So I finally hit up the Dollar Giant here in Calgary and got some great stuff!
    -playing cards 2 for $1
    -mini loofah - pack of 2
    -travel candles
    -matchsticks for candles
    -slim CD cases for homemade CD's
    -bandaids to top up first aid kits

    And if you are making up special bags for the kids, there's a whole aisle with toys, and lots of beach toys!

    I'm still looking for bulk mini packets of alka-selzer / immodium...anyone know anywhere locally to get them? Also the pocket size Spanish for Dummies...

      Tons of great suggestions ladies! We got married last November and had a really hard time getting summer stuff (esp for the kids OOTS) after labour day so it's a great chance to stock up over the next 6 months if you are getting married in the fall/winter!

          It was perfect. The weather during the day was low 80s and the evenings were nice - most ppl had a little cardigan or pashmina and that was all. The day of our wedding was the nicest evening of the week - most people went with out.

          We had an outdoor reception and it was perfect!

            Thanks so much Missy!

            So I'm wondering if anyone has ordered OOT tote bags from Oriental Trading...I am interested in the hibiscus ones, but are we able to specify what colour we want or do we just get an assortment?

              Hi gals,
              I just baught some aqua coloured plastic glasses (they are pretty big) from Zellers. They were on sale for $0.75 for 2. They only had aqua and a green at my store in Kamloops. I am just going to put people's names on them. Just thought I would pass on the cheap find.

                Thanks so much for this rec. I went out today and picked up 10 (52 oz) Bubba Kegs for all of the guys that are coming as guests to the wedding. The OOT bags that I had put together were too feminine and will just be for the ladies.

                  Hi Punkie569...I'm just wondering about vistaprint. I've taken your tip and checked out the website...but unfortunately I can only get ONE free pen. Do you have any more insider tips on how I can get a pile of them for free like you did? Thanks!!

                    I waas at Costco earlier and got 20 large fake-Shamwow's...one for each guest for drying off after getting out of the pool or sea...I think 20 was $16.99 CAD.
